Aspiring actors can audition this week for Expressions Community Theater’s production of “The Fox on the Fairway.”

The play by Ken Ludwig is described as a “tribute to great English farces” set at the Quail Valley Country Club as members prepare for the inter-club golf tournament against arch rival Crouching Squirrel. The show also features a disappearing diamond, objectionable sweaters and an exploding vase.

Expressions Community Theater is seeking six actors: a man in his 20s, two men in their 40s, a woman in her 20s, a woman in her late 30s and a woman in her 40s.

The auditions will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, 20965 Holyoke Av., Lakeville. Rehearsals begin the evening of Jan. 26. The show will be performed March 20-22 and March 27-29.
